Fried Pork and Crab Rolls Recipe

Ingredients :

1/2 cup Soaked cellophane noodles

1 Small onion, finely chopped

6 scallions, finely chopped

250g Pork mince

185g Crab meat, frozen or canned

1/2 teaspoon Salt

1 tablespoon Fish sauce

1/4 teaspoon Ground black pepper

Half packet Chinese spring roll wrappers

Oil for deep frying

Lettuce leaves

Fresh mint or parsley or fresh cilantro leaves

Strips of cucumber

Nuoc cham


Method :

Soak the cellophane noodles in hot water for 10 minutes, then drain. Cut the noodles into 2.5 cm lengths. Put into a bowl with the onion, scallion, pork, flaked crab meat (pick out any bits of bony tissue), salt fish sauce and pepper. Mix well. Cut each spring roll wrapper in halves and put 2 teaspoons of filling on one end, shaping it into a neat roll. Roll up, turning in the sides so that the filling is completely enclosed. Moisten edge of wrapper with a little water or egg white to stick. When all the rolls are made, heat oil in a wok and fry a few at a time on medium heat until they are crisp and golden. Do not have oil too hot or the filling will not cook through. Drain on absorbent paper. To serve : Wrap each roll in a lettuce leaf including a small sprig of mint, cilantro or parsley and a strip of cucumber. Dip in nuoc cham and eat right away.
